Gilbert Melendez wants to take Jorge Masvidal to a dark place and drown him (Video)

"I have experience. I've been training for five round fights my last eight or nine fights and I've gone the distance four or five times. When you look at my tapes, I'm not the same fighter. I break out a certain style for every fight and I'm constantly evolving. I'm willing to take it to that dark place and I think a lot of fighters aren't willing to take it there and I'm more than happy to take it there. My prediction is I'm gonna take him into deep water and drown him."

Bag full of unwanted kittens, Jorge Masvidal, it's all the same to Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez (via MMA Weekly), who puts his 155-pound strap on the line against "Gamebred" this Saturday night (Dec. 17) at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California. Five round fights are the norm for Melendez, who expects to have the edge in experience and endurance come fight night. Anyone think he locks this one up? Or will Masvidal make sure this fight doesn't go the distance? Predictions?
